michelle obama. chris matthews? >> certainly made the connection, don't you think? i mean, so much of tonight was interactive. it was between her and that audience in the room. i thought the camera work was so important watching this on television. you saw on the faces of men and women, black and white, all different backgrounds, the connection. she was with people. the emotional connection, telling the story of her love affair with her husband. with her life of getting ahead. but there was one big difference than four years ago which just came through in the earlier speeches tonight. it was hope and change, yes, hope and change but not hope and change imaginally overnight. but hope through work and patience and time and effort and then change. i think it was a much more mature look at their own lives as they got there. i'll tell you, i assume most americans watching tonight who have been lucky in this country, have gotten close to the american dream, have done it the way they did it. with student loans. with good parents who made them study. of being parents who make their kids st

[applause] >> four years ago, at this convention, i spoke with you all about how barack and i did not grow up with much in the wake of wealth. but we were blessed with a mother who taught us that education is the surest path from limited means to limitless opportunity. she inspired me to become a teacher and she inspired barack's deep commitment to giving all our young people the opportunity is our education ga

to what people are expecting from the first lady michelle obama's speech tonight. >> look, that is part of the reason for the excitement because first of all, have you these people and the configuration as you can see behind me, i'm above the podium which is a really great vantage point. as you can see, people are -- very, few people, very few delegations are actually on the floor. it is a bowl. they are up and around on the sides. that is, i think, making it sound a lot larger, louder, than it actually might be. it is very loud. they are very excited and they are not all here yet. there are a lot of empty seats. typically people are at dinner now but will be here in time for the keynote address. people are excited to hear castro the keynote speaker, but principally this is michelle obama's night. she is already throughout the campaign. they sent sought an e-mail a half hour ago asking people to text and send in $3 donations in advance of her speech. she told ryan seacrest today on his radio show she had not watched ann romney's speech and came here briefly to look at the stage and look

culminated with first lady michelle obama. these are some highlights. >> over the past few years as first lady, i had the extraordinary privilege of traveling all across this country. and everywhere i have gone in the people i have met in the stories i've heard, i have seen the very best of the american spirit. i have seen it in the incredible kindness and warmth people have shown me and my family, especially our girls. i've seen it in teachers in the near bankrupt school district who vowed to keep teaching without pay. i've seen it in people who become heroes at a moment's notice, diving into harm's way to save others, flying across the country to put out a fire, driving for hours to bail out a flooded town. and i've seen it in our men and women in uniform and our pratt military families. --proud military families. and wounded warriors who tell me they're not just going to walk, but are going to run and run marathons. in the young man blinded by a bomb in afghanistan who said simply, "i'd give my eyes 100 times again to have the chance to do what i have done and what i still do." every d
to expectations. >> chenk, if we were going to base the election on twitter then the winner would be michelle obama. the most tweets her minute. she had 28,000 tweets per minute during we are speech, mitt romney in comparison was 14,000 tweets per minute. bill clinton did go up against football. we have to take that into consideration. we haven't even heard joe biden or president obama speak so far and already we're at 6.3 million tweets, far surpassing where the republican national convention was. what do we expect from obama tonight. >> i think it's going to be bigger than all of this, although they are going up against the music video awards on mtv. i wouldn't want to stack him against justin bieber. we saw obama for america had their first hash tag today strangely not highjacked. >> they've been highjacked by progressives. the obama campaign bought their first hash tag not highjacked. >> we saw that trending today bill clinton talking about that. i think what's been really interesting is new numbers from a pew study that came out today. how are we going to translate this, 16% have changed

went to first lady michelle obama. she reminded the american people of her husband's values and vision. >> barack refused to listen to all those folks who told him to leave health reform for another day, another president. he didn't care whether it was the easy thing to do politically. no, that is not how he was raised. he cared that it was the right thing to do. >> president obama watched the first lady's speech in the treaty room of the white house with daughter sasha and malia. coming up, we'll go to charlotte for a live report. >>> maryland governor martin o'malley also addressed crowd at the democratic national convention last night. mark plotkin is also in charlotte. he and on fox 5 news at 10:00 last night saying o'malley will play an important role in the 2016 presidentialual cain. >> just a few moments ago, martin o'malley walked off the stage behind you. a lot of people are speculating he may be a candidate himself in four years. >> may be? he will be a candidate. he doesn't mind going after mitt romney as head of the democratic governors association. when i asked ike leggett
. it sounds a little bit like michelle obama's speech when she tried to link policy and the person. so this is also a guy joe biden, the vice president who's beenn on some of these decisions, he had a famous phrase which i guess we can't repeat on television to describe when health care passed. what's interesting about this through the prism of joe biden is this is a man who has not ruled out a 2016 run. so a lot will be looked at in this speech. this has been a man who's been quite loyal to president obama, done him a lot of go ahead. he has gone off the reservation as we say a couple of times. but he has done what they've asked of him. and, you know, the question is what happens next? over the next four years. we saw the powerful speech from bill clinton. and of course if you talked to folks out here after bill clinton last night, who do they all want to ask about? hillary clinton. it sets up a really interesting dynamic of a sitting vice president who's been very loyal to this president and of course hillary clinton who said she doesn't want to run. but certainly joe biden has said
's sister. he is michelle obama's brother. >> from the great state of hawaii, i'm maya soetoro, an educator, mother of two and proud to be barack obama's little sister. [cheering and applause] >> i'm craig robinson, michelle obama's big brother, father of four and head coach of oregon state university's men's basketball team. any seven footers out there, give me a call. >> craig and i come from different states. we've had different upbringings and, as you can see, we have different perspectives on the world. >> but no matter how different we may seem, we share a set of values our parents gave us. values the same in chicago as they are in honolulu. a willingness to work hard, a commitment to education and the responsibility to look out for each other. they're the values at the core of how barack and michelle have lived their lives, raised our nieces and led this country as president and first lady of the united states. >> four years ago at this convention, i spoke with you all about how barack and i didn't grow up with much in the way of wealth, but we were blessed with a mother who taught u
and talked about michelle obama you could feel the room light up and how unbelievably respected and effective she was, but then we got to the film, all of a sudden you recognize that enron they clearly represents inner strength, that she brings realism. she did everything her husband has not done and has not been able to get to. >> i think if you voted on the 22nd amendment they would have repealed if you're a good the clinton and michelle obama ticket for the united states, i think that came through. the bloom is very much off the rose on obama, and i think the formulation and now is the question is the faction, and they are somewhere in between, and you can see if it is pervasive, and the question is defection. i am angry, but i am not going to do it. she to me was quintessential. a fact of these people got so much out of the conventions -- they really a sort of so much, region in re -- they really absorbed so much. >> it was hard to see, because we did not have the tabulation, but if you do a net balance, it does not seem it is going to end up as a big romney game. praxair was one person h
. [cheers] no one could tell it as well as michelle obama, as you did last night, on monday night. i know him from a different perspective. i know him and i want to show you the character of a leader who had what it took when the american people stood on the brink of a new depression. a leader who has what it takes to lead us over the next four years to the future as great as our people. i want to take you inside the white house to see the president as i see him every day. i didn't see him and sound bites. i walked 30 paces down the hall and i see him. i watch him in action. four years ago, the middle class was already losing ground and then the bottom fell out. the financial crisis hit piece sledgehammer. all the people i grew up with. you remember the headlines. you saw some in the previews. highlight, highest job losses in 60 years. headlines, economy on the brink. it's plummet -- markets plummeted worldwide. he knew he had not only to restore the confidence of a nation but he had to restore the confidence of the whole world. [cheers] and he also knew that one false move could bring a
lady michelle obama gave dave letterman her top ten reasons you should watch tonight. >> there will be no kiss cam. >> oh, no, no. come on. why not? >> it's got to be better than what you're watching now. joe biden says it will be a big you know what deal. >> and the number one reason to watch the democratic national convention -- >> at long last, i'll reveal who i'm voting for. >> no doubt about that. good day, i'm andrea mitchell on the final day of the democratic national convention. where tonight vice president joe biden is going to have a starring role introducing the president, placing biden's name in the nomination will be his son, beau. the attorney general of delaware and beau biden joins me now. welcome. >> great to be with you, andrea. >> great to be with you. tell me about the excitement for the biden family, joe biden's big speech tonight, the move. his anticipation. >> i'm excited to see my mom introduce my dad. i'm going to nominate him. shortly thereafter my mom will introduce my father. we're all ready for a big night, most importantly to make sure wh
are here. that we are here to welcome the president barack obama, the first lady, michelle, the vice president, joe biden, and jill biden. to the greatest state in the nation. we are so excited to have the fab four in new hampshire. they have come here fresh off of their fantastic speeches in charlotte. this week in charlotte reminded us again how very proud we are to have barack obama as our president and michelle obama as our first lady. president obama is fighting for what democrats have always worked for -- an economy grounded in america as -- middle-class prosperity and an economy that is built to last. present obama knows this is a make or break moment for the middle-class. in order for the middle class to thrive, we need to restore the basic values of fairness and balance that have made this country so great. if you work hard and play by the rules, if you should be able to afford a home, send your kids to college, have a secure retirement, to know the next generation is going to be better off than this generation. found theseama's are our values. this president has had the cou
michelle obama appeared at two events in richmond and fredericksburg. and virginia is just one of the key battleground states coming up in this election, and president obama is leading in most of them. a new "the wall street journal" poll shows the president ahead of mitt romney in three key states. he leads by five points among likely voters in virginia. that lead jumps to seven points in ohio. political experts say these are fairly large leads for the president, but they could easily be wiped out if romney has a strong first debate. that debate is scheduled for october 3rd. >>> today the board of health will reconsider regulations on abortion clinics following attorney general ken cuccinelli. they voted to apply it only to new abortion centers. cuccinelli refused to certify those rules and told the board it may have to hire outside counsel if it gets sued. >>> metro riders should have a safer ride this morning thanks to a new system that monitors potential problems. the transit agency says a newly installed system can detect and warn of the type of problem that caused the deadly crash o
the country. i thought this was a very well orchestrated convention with michelle obama giving us more insight into barack obama the man. followed by bill clinton talking about the obama record on the economy and trying to bring people together. and then teeing it up for president obama to talk about what's next. and i thought that was very powerful. >> but you know, mo, the first lady did do a great job in her speech. bill clinton did an amazing job as well. the criticism of the president whilhe set certain goals and said this is how many js i want to create, this is what wae concerned,he environment is concerned, he didn't go into specifics and lay out how he's going to achieve those goals, mo. thatas folks. and th were disappointed he didn't use that venue to do it. >> well, look, ts speech was really the first stop in the general election campaign. and this -- i don't believe -- i know there's a lot of people wondering what kind of bounce either side is going to get. i don't believe there is going to be much bounce for either side because i believe this is going to be a continuous conversa
antonio mayor jewulian castro a will wrap up with a speech by first lady michelle obama. tomorrow will include speeches by massachusetts senate candidate elizabeth warren and former president bill clinton followed by the delegate roll call to nominate president obama for a second term. >> did you see the article in politico about how elizabeth warren is a star here but is having trouble gaining traction in massachusetts. mike, you said it a long time ago, she is a national star for the democratic party but in her own state she's trailing by 5 points and there a lot of democrats that always vote democrat that like brown. they say he's one of us, he's what we would say in the south a good ol' boy. he's not exactly good ol' boy but he talks like those guys who call into boston radio stations bitching about the red sox. that's his persona. i don't know if that's really him but he's got it now. >> again, these two guys can tell you, maybe buttress this point of view, massachusetts is more than cambridge and beacon hill. it's a very moderate state once you get past 128, the outer beltwa
of xcompetitive people. one person in the entire circle more competitive than him and that's michelle obama. this is someone who wants to win and gets very fired up. >> she doesn't come off that way. >> believe me, she wants to win even more badly than he does. >> you've written two books on president obama. you did "renegade" all about the campaign and then you did did "revival" the first two years of the presidency. how did you come to do those books? >> well, what's that woody allen line about09% of life is just showing up? i showed up. i showed up from springfield, illinois, all the way through to the end of the obama campaign on election night four years ago and, you know, you build up relationships and experiences and a perspective and so there were surprisingly few people who followed the whole journey. you couldn't understand the campaign unless were you in iowa in 2007 and i was and so that it self led to the first book and i thought the first book, the campaign was one thing but governing had proved so difficult and such a challenge. a fundamental challenge not just because of the
with it tonight, at the moment, michelle obama is there with her mother in the front row. that's the best seat in the house. the worst seat in the house is section 201. you could not get any further from the stage, top row, 201. at 4:00 today, section 201 was filled, five hours ago. that's how long the delegates and supporters have been waiting for these big speeches tonight. we are reaching a boiling point. remember, this was expected to be an outdoor event. so the delegates inside had tickets on tuesday night and wednesday night. that's how they gained access to the proceedings tonight. as for the other 40,000 tickets, they are simply out of luck after the venue was cancelled. one reminder, 2008, stage right, there is a barack obama picture, it looks like the campaign of 2008 with the four-letter word hope beneath it. it may be a reminder of paul ryan's sharp comment in tampa just a week ago. by the way, the weather was the big reason they said it was moved inside. tonight in charlotte, it is partly cloudy. 78 degrees. and no rain in sight. bret and megyn, back to you. >> let's bring the pan
at the democratic national convention, first lady michele obama is headed to virginia to campaign for her husband. the first stop will be in richmond. president obama won that state four years ago, the first democratic president -- presidential candidate. >>> a candidate is backing off statements that women who have abortions are more likely to have cancer. his campaign says that he was misinformed by misreading information. another republican, todd akin said that women can prevent pregnancy from legitimate rape. >>> over 100 police cars in montgomery county are out of service due to a potential safety issue. we will explain. >>> and another day on the picket line for teachers in chicago as the union fights behind closed doors. coming up next, the latest attempts to hammer out a deal. >>> and another chance to sound out about proposed toll hikes in northern virginia. where you can take your complaints tonight. >>> as we head to the break, another live look outside. another crystal clear morning. you'll need your sunglasses this morning. we'll get the latest traffic and weather from julie and tuck
a little preview of what we're hearing from michelle obama, are we going to see the president at all tonight, a la mitt romney and ann romney last week? >> reporter: not exactly to see the president, chuck, but i am told he's going to watch the first lady's speech here at the white house, as you said, he's going to be campaigning all you day. he'll be back in time to watch her speech. so we know that is for certain, but as you mentioned, we're going to hear things from the first lady when she takes the podium this evening. she's really going to talk about her husband's values. she's going to talk a lot about why he understands the middle class. why he's the best candidate to defend the middle class and also going to defend his policies particularly as they relate to women. of course, that's a key constituency to president obama. she'll talk about the lilly ledbetter act, talk about health care, why the policies have been so beneficial to women and while she's not going to mention mitt romney by name, she is clearly going to try to draw a sharp contrast with mitt romney who, for examp
carolina. first lady michelle obama will speak that night. former president bill clinton will address the convention saturday night and joe biden will speak around 6:30 pacific time and president obama will deliver his acceptance speech at 7:00 p.m. from the seats in the bank of america football stadium. >>> we will have coverage all week long. ken pritchett will report when president obama is going to address the delegates. >>> this is outside chevron's refinery. they accuse the oil giant of polluting the air from the bay area to the amazon. they want company executives prosecuted for last month's fire. they expect to attend and including war protestors including cindy sheehan. and they want to run it under labor and community control. >>> new mobile job store is helping military veterans get back in the workforce. they help veterans narrow down employment searches to match interest and skills. they are visiting 200 cities across the nation providing information about job openings. there are 10 stops here in california. today and tuesday, they will bring the mobile truck to the travi
>>> tonight the main event here in charlotte. after powerful warm-ups from michelle obama. >> we must work like never before. >> and bill clinton, just last night. >> you must reelect president barack obama. >> tonight joe biden leads off and then the president makes his case for re-election. 3 f2 >> aquÍ estÁ brian williams. the primetime address by president obama and the beginning really of the final push, when americans wake up tomorrow morning, this election is suddenly 60 days away. now, as you know, the president's surrogates from the first lady to former president bill clinton have laid the groundwork for tonight and shortly we'll hear from vice president joe biden and then, of course, president barack obama. we were not supposed to be in here tonight. we were supposed to be across town in the football stadium. you see it there live, for what was supposed to be an outdoor celebration for upwards of 65,000 people, but the risk of rough weather was too great. it came through here late this afternoon. as of tonight, you can second guess this all evening. jim cantore, where
to the other. tried to set a good example, you know, speaking out about it like michelle obama has done, considering the importance of physical activity for our children, making sure we support and promote that in ways that are advisory only and not requirement. also paying for prevention, making sure people can go see their doctors and learning about the dangers of diabetes. if we can bring down diabetes in our adult population by just 10%, it is amazing what it does to the cost curve of are debt and deficit. i would not be someone who thinks the government should get in the business of telling people what they should eat or drink. >> jonathan dine. >> the top five leading causes of death are all related to diet and lifestyle. they are all preventable. diet and exercise can make a big difference. i've been a personal trainer for 15 years. i help people motivate themselves. it is something that anybody can do at any age, but somebody needs to be a role model. the government should make incentives. it is the number one drain on our health care system overall. we do need to have some posi
clinton, michelle obama. what's the strategy? >> well, you have a set number of battleground states, especially in this election, the map i would say favors us more than it toes the republicans because they have must-win states. republicans can't win this election if they won't win florida, virginia, ohio. the map doesn't add up. what you do is divide and conquer. you have the president and vice president hitting the first key battlegrounds and see surrogates like the first lady and vice president, joe biden, you send her to other second tier states. >> joe biden in the blue collar areas, in those states of michigan, iowa, pennsylvania. ohio. where his kind of background fits very well with that middle of the road electorate that hasn't decided yet. >> you know, when you look at the key undecideds, a lot of these middle of the road voters who are still trying to figure out which way they want to go, i think what you saw from the convention here was a really impassioned message by democrats that made it very clear the distinction between these two parties. if i'm an undecided voter a
of their own convention and it really is sort of like a sugar high. you see somebody like michelle obama give such an incredible speech about her husband. i think anybody married to michelle obama would have gotten a bounce out of that speech. but this is not the type of thing sustainable if you have the kind of jobs numbers that president obama. we had great headlines friday morning coming out of the convention. by noon friday, all the headlines very, very negative on the jobs picture. it will be tough to sustain it. he'll have to keep pushing to keep them up. >> preceding the jobs number, anne, as we step back from the conventions, realistically, will anything that happen in either of those events have any lasting effect? >> i do think it's possible. certainly bill clinton's speech to the extent it reminded voters that these two presidents were part of the same party, they share a philosophy. there were parts of bill clinton's speech that diverged from some of the other speakers going after bain and after wall street. that was not president clinton's message. president clinton could be memo
